This museum has photographs and stories of Jewish life in Galicia. It shows the aftermath of the Holocaust and efforts to maintain or restore elements of that life. I would sttingly recommend a visit.

I think perhaps not but I'm sure they'd point you in the direction of someone who does, if that's possible. Best wishes, John
